Research

The Johnson Depression Center is widely recognized as the region’s premier resource for people and families seeking treatment for depression, bipolar and anxiety disorders.

To further advance our work, the Center’s research faculty collaborate with agencies and universities across the country to conduct a diverse portfolio of research that includes:

  • Evaluating the effectiveness of innovative approaches to care, such as improving the treatment of adolescent bipolar disorder and post-partum depression;
  • Developing new ways to diagnose mood disorders and identify people at risk of suicide
  • Developing projects that translate research findings into real-world community settings

Participating in the National Network of Depression Centers’ Mood Outcomes Program, a clinical and research initiative to better track a patient’s mood and anxiety levels over time to help determine which treatment strategies are most helpful in improving symptoms.
